Five-year-old Marcus has struggled during COVID-19. He has felt more isolated and, as a result, his behavioral challenges have increased. He has struggled to engage with his therapist over telehealth, which has compounded these challenges. Seeing that things were not working, Marcus’s therapist got creative with art supplies and developed ways for Marcus to process his emotions and connect with her. After several weeks of using the new method, they had a breakthrough.
